Even with the addition of a new couple in Super Junior member Kangin and actress Lee Yoon Ji to MBC star wedding variety We Got Married, the rating for the show continued its slump instead of rising yesterday evening.
According to TNS Media Korea, the rating for We Got Married yesterday clocked in at only 12.0%. In the aftermath of Hwang Bo – Kim Hyun Joong departure last week, the new couple of Kangin – Lee Yoon Ji who was making their debut did not bring about a rise in ratings. In contrast, the rating dropped by 0.9% compared to Hwang Bo – Kim Hyun Joong farewell trip (12.9%) last week.
In contrast, competing tv staton SBS Family Outing saw a healthy increase in its rating, achieving a whopping 29.1%, almost hitting 30%. The main reason being the guest for this episode was actor Jang Hyuk who rarely makes any appearance on variety shows. Combined rating for KBS Happy Sunday (IMC, 1N2D) was 17.5%. 1N2D single rating was not available at time of writing.
Lee Yoon Ji and Kangin met for the first time at a local university library. Their concept was to act as a college couple. After making contact, they went for their first date, eating spicy rice cakes. Later on, they went around asking 50 people for their signatures, to be acknowledged as a make-believe married couple and then get married at Dongdaemun in a simple wedding ceremony.
The latter will be shown in the next episode.
